Jessie Turner

With our line up of artists now confirmed we want to start sharing information about the people that you will be able to meet at the show this year! Jessie Turner is a Vancouver based jewellery designer who literally puts her heart into her work. The Georgia Straight recently published an article featuring her work and notably designated her as one of the city's top two jewellery designers. Right on, Jessie!

Having shown with us in the past, but not last year, we are happy to have Jessie back at SFM this year!

Jessie Turner has been a jewellery designer since 1998, specializing in natural and contemporary forms in silver and gold.  Jessie's collections are inspired by the natural beauty around us, and by the ways we manifest and express our interpretations of that beauty. Her travels in Asia, Europe, Central America, and Canada, and exploration of these places through their art, culture and architecture profoundly influence her designs. Originally from British Columbia's west coast Jessie now resides in Vancouver.

"All things worn by people can have purpose and meaning that fulfills lives in some way, creating balance, both within and between, the individual, the community and the natural world.  In my work I hope to bring this alive by playfully exploring traditional and contemporary ideas of design. I create jewellery and art, encouraging people's individuality and connection to truth, nature and beauty."
